Unilateral Paralyzed Diaphragm--chances of bilateral?

I was diagnosed with a paralyzed right diaphragm last year. They think it was due to a virus. However, I remember having a severe pain in the right diaphragm area two days before I finally went to the ER with severe shortness of breath. I've been managing fine so far. Last night I had a severe pain in the left side diaphragm area. Feeling more out of breath today than usual.

Just wondering if anyone here had unilateral (one-side) diaphramatic paralysis that ended up becoming bilateral (both sides). Just wondering what the chances are of this happening.

Thanks!

Re: Unilateral Paralyzed Diaphragm--chances of bilateral?

Regarding your post on unilateral diaphramatic paralysis: Three months ago I began having "panic" attacks which I had sever shortness of breath for no apparent reason. I am a spinal chronic pain patient so I thought the extreme pain was causing my panic attacks. Although I have been a spinal patient since 1983 without having a shortness of breathe problem in the past. So the last three months has been a mystery for me as well as my doctors. Next month I will be sent to The University of Washington Hospital in an effort to find the reason for this diaphragm to suddenly stop working.
In reading your post your symptoms are quite parallel to mine. Has there been any progress in your condition. And what if the other side fails?
I am new to this condition and rather nervous about the possible outcomes.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
